Editorial Reviews


Baghdad Ablaze insightfully evaluates the U.S. invasion and occupation as a spark and pretext for terrorist groups to build organizations, sects to broaden their political base, and Iran to control Iraq. The book makes crucial suggestions regarding how occupation forces can end the violence instead of inspiring it. The incisiveness of these ideas about Iraq for Europe and America complement the author's book, What Makes Tehran Tick. -----Paulo Casaca, Portugese Member of European Parliament

Baghdad Ablaze is exceptional in its portrayal of the political landscape of Iraq. The book paints a picture of ethnic differences, legacy of discrimination against Shiites by Sunnis, and sectarian violence. According to evidence in Baghdad Ablaze, sectarian tensions were dormant until unleashed by occupation, and exacerbated by the Iranian regime. -----Struan Stevenson, Scottish Member of European Parliament

Baghdad Ablaze artfully confirms the complexity of the conflict in Iraq. It also pinpoints illegal Iranian intervention in the conflict through the use of unconventional forces and proxy organizations, which merge to feed instability in Iraq and Iraqi sectarian dependence upon Tehran. -----General Alexander M. Haig, Jr. (USA Ret.), Former Secretary of State

About the Author

Established in February 2005, the Iran Policy Committee (IPC) is comprised of former officials from the White House, State Department, Pentagon, intelligence agencies, and experts from think tanks and universities.

IPC, a nonprofit and bipartisan organization based in Washington DC, believes that for too long, policy debate on Iran has been divided between those who favor engagement with and those who support military strikes against the Iranian regime. President George W. Bush advocates working with the Iranian people as opposed to the regime in Tehran and has explicitly called for ending tyranny in Iran. By calling for change in Tehran based on Iranians instead of Americans, IPC stresses the potential for a third alternative: Keep open diplomatic and military options, while providing a central role for the Iranian opposition to facilitate democratic change.

Iran has emerged as a primary threat against the United States and its allies: Iran s drive to acquire nuclear weapons, continuing support for and involvement with terrorist networks, support for groups in opposition to the Arab-Israel peace process, disruptive role in Iraq, expansionist radical ideology, and denial of basic human rights to the Iranian population are challenges confronting U.S. policymakers.

IPC enters the debate in Washington over Iran policy by think tanks that also published reports on Iran Council on Foreign Relations, The Committee on the Present Danger, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (TWI). In trying to solve the puzzle posed by Iran, the IPC goes beyond these organizations to suggest a central role for the Iranian opposition in U.S. policymaking.

Members of the IPC: James Akins, Ambassador (ret.); Lt. Col. Bill Cowan, USMC (ret.); R. Bruce McColm, Lt. General Thomas McInerney; Captain Charles T. Chuck Nash, USN (ret.); Lt. General Edward Rowny, USA (ret.); Professor Raymond Tanter; Major General Paul E. Vallely, USA (ret.).
